Review

Our Score
The fourth Airport movie goes supersonic and has more disaster-packed moments than the average genre entry. Taking a chance with the usual inedible in-flight food, pilots George Kennedy and Alain Delon also have to deal with a missile chasing the plane, an emergency landing with no brakes, various explosions and doors coming off, and a crash-landing into snow. It's very silly, but the starry cast (Robert Wagner, Sylvia Kristel, Eddie Albert) manages to be as over-the-top as the effects, making this a fun if incredibly mindless way to spend a couple of hours.

Summary

A supersonic plane en route from Washington to Moscow for the Olympics becomes the target of a rogue defence systems industrialist caught up in illegal arms dealing. On board, a female television news journalist has documents proving his involvement - and to stop her from exposing him, he sets in motion a plan to destroy the plane. Disaster movie sequel, with Robert Wagner, Alain Delon, George Kennedy, Susan Blakely, David Warner and Sylvia Kristel.
